Peter Jackson, master of subversive comedy, presents the story of a hapless young man whose overbearing mother gets him into a heap of trouble when she catches a bizarre zombie virus and starts turning innocent passersby into walking corpses. This grandiose splatterfest features loads of unforgettable, stomach-turning effects. Highlights include a ghoulish, bloodthirsty baby, zombie mutilation, progressive putrefaction, and an off-the-wall undead mating scene. Sick, twisted, and hilarious, DEAD ALIVE is unlike anything you have ever seen before--and is definitely not for the squeamish.
MPAA Rating: R.
This was an amusing Evil Dead rip-off. The best line "I kick ass for the Lord!" The best sceen: Bright-Light Zombie!
Billed as one of the goriest movies ever made, I thought the Re-Animator movies where gorier.
I also thought that Evil Dead movies were much better, but Dead Alive was well worth seeing.
Probably the most interesting thing about Dead Alive is that it was co-written and directed by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson.
